Orchard Cottage, Castle Brae

This house, now demolished, was situated at the foot of Castle Brae. and was the home of a family called Sangster. Note the left hand ground floor window level with the pavement indicating that part of the house was below street level. You had to go down two or three steps to enter the front door. The small building to the right may have been a paint store.
